Let’s see here... 101, 102, 103... Oh shoot! A girl simply cannot keep count of the many fights and problems in Hollywood!! Fortunately, your favorite fishy accountant, Shamantha Cox. is crunching all the numbers for you and reporting on the best stories only, exclusively in this fine fag rag, Odyssey Magazine, Mary!! Hey, whatever happened to that Perez Hilton person?? Oh dear!! Super divorce sensation!! Everyone’s in a tizzy over the biiig Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes split!!! Sources close to the situation say Katie left because she was worried Tom was brainwashing Suri with his Scientology problem!!! Surprisingly, both parties were able to reach a very quick divorce settlement and it looks like they will have joint custody of little Suri, unlike Tom’s last divorce to Nicole Kidman, where he took full custody of their adopted children, Connor and Bella!!!

RHEA Southern California, sorry for not writing in the last issue, because well... a bitch has got to sleep sometime! Lol. As I sit here with Willam & Detox after an amazing photo-shoot in the luxurious back alleys of Melrose with Jeremy Kost, we reflect on the past couple of weeks. Trannyshack was a HUGE success with amazing performances! Heklina brought the house down, Willam hosted, Traci Lords signed autographs & Rolling Blackouts caught it all on film! visit to find out when Trannyshack is hitting your town! One of the biggest of the year for the bar industry is July 3rd, and it was a HUGE HIT @ Billy Francesca’s Lip Tickler. Countre Black performed, Derek Monteiro spun, and Billy rana-muck throughout Micky’s making sure everyone had a smile on their face! July 4th kept the party rolling @ Stripper Circus @ Here Lounge with a jaw-dropping performance by the hottest new openly-gay recording artist, Ryan Adames. That boy has some moves! Spotted: Paul Nicholls, Woody Woodbeck, Chi Chi Larue, Allusia, Lexi Leventhal, Willam, Samuel Garfield, and more! Vicky Vox celebrated her birthday @ MJ’s bar with some of the hottest stars in town: Willam Belli, Detox, Chanel Perrillo,

Wow!! American Idol executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe, has revealed they are in talks with top warlock Charlie Sheen to be a judge on the show’s upcoming season!! Secret production sources are saying crazy Charlie is probably going to sign on- if they cough up enough cold hard cash!! Oops!! Lady Gaga has launched her own social network for her fans called “Little Monsters”!! Gee!! Katy Perry is winning in the music world, after her sophomore album, “Teenage Dream” got a huge sales boost this week, thanks to her smash hit 3-D documentary film, “Part of Me”!!! In other music success news, Rihanna’s domestic-violence-inducing-ex, Chris Brown’s latest album, “Fortune” rocketed to the #1 spot on the charts in the US, the UK, and many other countries worldwide!! Good news!! It looks like Channing Tatum Mathu Andersen, Cody Bayne, Josh Peace, Glamorous Monique, Nelstar. WeHo hits Logo TV in their newest series, “In The Big House”. Think your family’s “whack”? Meet the Verdis from Logo’s new docu-reality series, “In the Big House.” When Michel Verdi and her husband, Jay Krymis [Fubar/ St Felix], moved from just outside Philly to West Hollywood, they thought they were leaving it all behind – until their entire family followed. Now, Michel and Jay share their home with Michel’s mom, Dotsie and ex-con, former Mafioso dad, “Big Lou” who’s been in and out of prison for 25 years. Did we mention Michel’s parents have been divorced for 25 years, can’t stand each other and haven’t lived together until now? Rounding out the clan is Michel’s out-and-unapologetic gay brother, Louis, who is eager to make it on his own, but unable to leave the family nest as of yet. “In the Big House” documents a new type of modern family, as these over-the-top characters struggle to succeed with humor, heart, and a whole lot of drama. Comprised of eight, half-hour episodes, “In the Big House” premieres on Monday, July 23 at 10PM ET/PT on Logo. Save-The-Date: LABOR DAY WEEKEND Wanna travel? Come with me to Southern Decadence in New Orleans Stay local: Matinée LA PARTIES NOT 2 MISS: Tuesday: Lip Tickler @ Micky’s Wednesday: Stripper Circus @ Here Lounge Thursday: BACK @ The Abbey Bitches!!!! Friday: Hype @ Ultra Suede/ Factory Saturday: Hooker Casino @ Here Lounge Sunday: Drag Brunch @ Hamburger Marys PARTY HARDY, BE SAFE, AND OF COURSE WRAP IT UP! Xoxo, Rhea Litré @RheaLitre |

will be taking off his clothes again because a Magic Mike sequel is already in development!! Wow!! Another unnecessary problem for top female rocker, Courtney Love!!! Her ex ASS-istant with a hookerish stripper name, Jessica La Brie, is suing the gorgeous Miss Love, claiming Courtney asked her to break the law by demanding she hack into a computer and create counterfeit legal documents!!! Hmmm... sounds like a bunch of nonsense!!! It seems like Ms. La Brie is just looking for some quick cash and attention because she is also shopping a tell-all (lies only) book about Courtney called “Get Me A Xanax”! Don’t worry Courtney!!! Your friend at Odyssey Mag, Shamantha Cox, will always be loyal to fierce girls like you, Lil’ Kim, Heidi Fleiss, Janice Dickinson, and Alexis Arquette!! And, Shamantha will always be nothing but mean, mean, mean to her enemies like Dr. Who (sorry, she is not publishing the real name of any fake television witch doctors - but she knows her loyal readers can DREW the math!) It’s yet another Celebrity Rehab super problem, after the show’s asshole host, Dr. Who, has been exposed for taking $275,000 in bribe money from evil pharmaceutical company, Glaxo, to make false claims supporting their horrible and unsafe anti-depressant drug, Wellbutrin!! And now, all of Dr. Who’s shady bribe money deals are suddenly surfacing!!! Hey, Dr. Who... who knew the Karma Chameleon could work so quick!!!! Hooray!!! Sexy mainstream hip hop artist, Frank Ocean, (who has collaborated with heavy weights like Jay-Z and Kanye West) has shaken up the rap world after announcing he is gay!! While he did receive some backlash from more ignorant unheard of types like an idiot rapper named Mysonne, real stars like Beyoncé Knowles, Jake Shears, Russell Simmons, Trina, Lil’ Scrappy, Busta Rhymes, Lil’ Wayne, and Rick Ross showed their acceptance by sending lots of love tweets and public statements supporting his decision to come out of the closet!!! In other out news, Anderson Cooper has finally made it public that he is indeed gay and proud!!! Wheee! It’s fights, fights and more fights in the hip hop world!!! After Chris Brown and Drake got into a nightclub scuffle that left several sue happy innocent bystanders injured, rappers the Game and 40 Glocc must have been feeling left out of the drama because they got in a punch out fight at a Hollywood Hills party, and now both sides are making death threats against each other!!!! Sounds like it’s another 1990’s Notorious B.I.G. vs. 2Pac killer situation!!! Uh oh!! Ashley Judd is declaring war on her ex-step dad, Michael Ciminella, because she has taken steps to foreclose on his home, claiming he owes her almost $250,000 in borrowed money!!! Oops!! Food network chef, Cat Cora, must have been doing her best 2006 Nicole Richie/Paris Hilton/Lindsay Lohan impression because she was arrested for a big fame heavy D.U.I!!! Hey!! Don’t get overwhelmed by all the drama!! Just make sure you always pick up a copy of the best fag rag around, Odyssey Magazine, and take a dive in the dirt, so you are always in the gossip know!! Shamantha loves to serve her loyal readers with only the finest filth available!! See you in two weeks, kiddies!!

Hello my loves!

BY WILL I. HAVETOCHANGEMYNAME This week’s music releases read like a Russian novel: long and difficult! With a few exceptions, Florence and the Machine’s single, “Spectrum” ( the Calvin Harris remix will have you moving), with a beautiful video by David LaChapelle, is a nice surprise from the ginger warbler. Speaking of nice tunes and grooving, Ellie Goulding‘s, “Lights”, is followed by “Hangin’ On” which is doing just that - hanging on in my iPod playlist!

“Blow Me”! ( One Last Kiss) by P!NK is so much fun to sing, and the we all know why. Getting to sing BLOW ME out loud in crowds has always been a way to draw attention and show off your voice while subtly suggesting help. The song is dance ready in its original form, but, of course, has been remixed a dozen times to fill every gay niche of dance to insure her presence on every gay dance floor from here to Kissimmee. (Sorry, couldn’t resist that one!)

“Sorry” doesn’t seem to be the hardest word for Madonna who recently apologized for anyone offended by her flashing her nipple onstage during a concert in Italy. She also followed that with “if you don’t like it”, you can also kiss her ass which she then flashed. She’ll turn it up once again on the dance floor with her next single which is indeed, “Turn Up The Radio”. Yes, it bears a resemblance to “Hello” featuring Dragonette, but change the words and a few chords and, voila, you have a hit! “Hello” was a success and a great dance tune, so we give Madge a 7 for this, not original, but if you’re gonna “Lady Gaga“ a song, at least make it a good one! She has just shot the video in Florence, Italy, so expect a debut of the video and a slew of mixes to hit soon. Just in time for her Madgesty’s MDNA tour that lands here on August 28th in Philadelphia, so get your tickets… oh wait.. never mind, SOLD OUT!

Okay, hello. This weekend, there can be a lot of emphasis on talking about our feelings, but perhaps not a lot of depth to it. Venus forms a pleasing aspect to Mercury on Saturday, but because Mercury turns retrograde just hours later, there can be some misunderstandings involved. It is possible that we might say things now and later change our minds about them. (Can you imagine?!) We are not inclined to want to face reality while the Moon is in dreamy, impressionable Pisces. It can be a compassionate time. We are especially imaginative, and our intuition reigns under this influence. Boundaries and walls come down, along with inhibitions, and pants (okay, hello) as Pisces energy merges and blends. It’s a time when details are overlooked for the greater good of the greater good. (Follow??) And feelings of all types seem to defy description. We’re motivated by a strong desire to start fresh. Our impulses are strong, and we feel energetic, spontaneous, and enthusiastic. Hoo! Hoo! Sounds like ideal conditions with which to enjoy the Spa. If you do elect to do just that, don’t fall into that La-La land of a floating magic carpet ride for too long, as when you do return, you may find that some steep overtime fees have accrued. Read your horoscope. Kiss someone. Grab your keys and clothes. After all, you’re all stars.

If you desire the advantage of knowing how and when to make the best moves you can in your life, Mrs. Hello would love to assist you with personalized Astrological guidance. The cost is nominal, the benefit great, and your confidence assured. Address interest in these services, as well as any other astrologically inclined correspondence to: and be sure to include “Mrs. Hello” in the subject line.

CANCER JUN 22 – JUL 22: No more lame excuses. Now is the time to go out, even if you don’t have a thing to wear. The rest of the world needs you there, so even if you aren’t feeling your best, you can show up and in so doing, look at what this good exposure will bring to your personal re-release party! The fact remains, any summer can be “The Summer of Love,” so catch a wave and sit on top of the world. I recommend it, the view is stellar. LINDSAY LOHAN/MERV GRIFFIN LEO JULY 23 – AUG 23: It seems that among friends who are usually your right hand and seeing eyes, many have become “fixtures” as their contributions are so in line with yours… but there have been times when you’ve been out of sync with these people. This feels worse than it is, but don’t worry, you are not going to be voted off the island. This time can be utilized to good advantage inasmuch as these individuals are not plotting against you, but rather are in some heavy transitions as well. The shift will come soon. The compromise(s) are not wasted on anyone, and there will be much comfort in this. TONY JOHNSON/STEPHEN DORFF

shouldn’t call them at all, especially if the phone keeps being answered by someone else… Feeling me yet? Thought so. It’s okay to want something, but if you doubt, then maybe you don’t. It works for Opera give it a try. ROCK HUDSON/ETHAN HAWKE SAGITTARIUS NOV 23 – DEC 21: You have a lot on your mind, and your insatiable curiosity can lead you to exciting new learning experiences. However, nervous energy can burn out quickly, so do what you can to feed your need for information in constructive ways; maybe log off for once. Also, watch that a playful attitude isn’t misinterpreted as flighty, and try not to read too much into something that is just meant to be fun. JOHN GALLIANO/NICK STAHL

ARIES MAR 21 – APR 19: “I don’t care about your other girls, just be good to me.” It seems that you are putting attention on getting noticed and gushed over, but the question is, by whom?? Your desire for recognition has become a little top-heavy, and thus some of your good instincts have suffered as a result. By cultivating some of those who tell you what you want to hear, you might be running the risk of inviting more wolves in sheep’s clothing back into your world. Remember what happened last time. Ask yourself if you’re needy, or greedy. JIM PARSONS/GRAHAM KERR

TAURUS APR 20 – MAY 21: Well now, aren’t you smart! The time has come for more people to notice you for what you can do (some of which has been kept out of the big picture), but no more! Your talent abounds, and this is the perfect time to express that. By doing so, you will open yourself up to the potential of better people which could prove to be significant for your advancement,. Go on now with your fancy self. MICHAEL ALIG/ROBERT PATTISON GEMINI MAY 22 – JUN 21: Saying (or writing) it with style comes natural now. A yen for variety is a hallmark of this phase, and this especially applies to romantic experience and artistic tastes. (The latter tends to focus on literature in general and poetry in particular.) A sociable, congenial, slightly frivolous orientation sets in. ANDERSON COOPER/ZACHARY QUINTO

2012-07-13.indd 26

VIRGO AUG 24 – SEP 22: There are some things in life you have to develop a taste for; some people are that way too. I think you maybe understand that when we first meet others, sometimes there needs to be a warming up period. Look at this time to be an indicator of who is worth the time and who might not be. Those that stick around, and in turn, those to whom you keep keeping company, could be the new money shots. For all others, cut ‘em loose… it’s time to clean house, not just spray it down with Lysol. GERI JEWELL/TYLER PERRY LIBRA SEP 23 – OCT 23: A new language could be on the horizon either in the way of your cultivation and maybe journey, or maybe it will be from someone new in your life who gets you all carried away (in a good way), and indulges you with something out of the ordinary and a little exotic. This all comes at a time when most all aspects for you have been pretty even keel, and even a little bland. Be sure to tidy up your house and yourself. Pretty soon you won’t have time. CLIVE BARKER/RUSSELL SIMMONS

SCORPIO OCT 24 – NOV 22: “Well I heard you were High Class, but that was just a lie.” Did your adventures with Make-Believe Man leave you a bit disturbed? Okay, well remember that you can’t always “call ‘em as you sees ‘em”, and maybe you

CAPRICORN DEC 22 – JAN 20: And whoosh! As you shake much of the past six months out of your head, you may have a new and sudden clarity that allows you to relax, and see past many blocks that stood in your way, to some extent, for a while now. At this time, it is hard to do any wrong, Now isn’t that a welcome change? People respond better than before, and you regain much status… just like you… Again. The pieces fit together, and as you ascend to this level, you do so with ease and grace, which pretty much makes it real. DANNY PINTAURO/GAYLE KING

AQUARIUS JAN 21 – FEB 18: Your ruler, Uranus, is approaching a station before turning retrograde this weekend. You might want to watch for impulsiveness and impatience this week, as the shift may leave you feeling a bit confused. Uranus has been introducing you to a wider and perhaps eclectic array of mental interests recently, and the retrograde period prompts you to search within for answers and new insights. It can be challenging keeping a schedule, as distractions are many, so try to put yourself in a good environment that is quiet just until you get ‘er done. Then join ‘em out and about! JAMES DEAN/TYLER LAUTNER PISCES FEB 19 – MAR 20: Decisions revolving around money and personal possessions tend to come suddenly or are made quite impulsively now, but because there is a bit of a risk taker in you at the moment, it›s probably best to avoid situations in which you could lose significant amounts. This energy can also play out on the level of values rather than finances, and there can be some conflicts over what you feel you›re worth and the value or respect others are showing you.

Hey gang, I’ve been missing in action for about a month: my apologies. Ever since the porn world was turned upside down by the untimely passing of Erik Rhodes, it forced me to sit down and really take a look at the porn industry and how far it has come, and more importantly how I feel about it after being part of it for six years. More on that later... To recap, Austin Wilde & Anthony Romero exited from their exclusive contracts with Next Door Studios for reasons you can find on hundreds of blogs out there. Since we last spoke to Wilde & Romero, not only have the two been focusing on their side project, but they also jointly signed an exclusivity contract with The two will be stopping by COCKTAILS WITH THE STARS on 7/25 to talk about their new ventures and celebrate Micky’s & COCKTAILS’ first ever XXXMAS N JULY party on the downstairs patio. If you can remember, please bring an unwrapped toy as they will be delivered to the city of West Hollywood Sheriff Department for distribution. DJ Kid Magik will be spinning, we will have Council Member John Duran stopping by and lots of socialites and celebrities - we’ll see you from 6 - 9:30pm! More details are coming soon so follow our show on Twitter for all the latest info @ COCKTAILSXXX or subscribe to our mailing list by messaging me: As previously noted Erik Rhodes passed away in his sleep of a heart attack on 6/14. It struck a cord and left me devastated for way too many reasons to articulate. When I was starting out as a porn columnist, the gods of porn were Tyler Riggz, Christian Owen, Matthew Rush, François Sagat, Damien Crosse, Michael Brandon, Francesco D’Macho, Chad Hunt, Johnny Hazzard, Tommy D, Robert Van Damme & Erik Rhodes. Fast forward six years later Tyler & Tommy are out, Chad, Christian & Johnny are semi-retired and Erik is gone - this all leads me to ask ‘Who of the current porn stars that are performing in 2012 will be remembered in six years?’ Who do you think it will be? Tweet me and let me know! Speaking about Robert Van Damme he dropped by COCKTAILS WITH THE STARS last week promoting his new album THE REAL ESCORTS OF AMERICA (buy it now on and while we were on break (in between sets) I was able to get some private face time with him and he was not only candid but also the lovable Robert we’ve all come to love! YOU TOOK A BRIEF BREAK IN THE PORN INDUSTRY, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING? I never really took a break from industry, My last movie release was early 2011 Muscle God Celebration and prior to that I released one of my best selling DVD, Dirty Muscle. As everyone knows all Studios have suffered During the last few years so I used my time to completely revamp my website in order to be competitive in todays online internet porn industry including Live Cam Show for my Members! I am open to work for other respectful studios,If they are interested all they need to do is call! VERY FEW STARS CAN TAKE BREAKS AND COME BACK AND BE SUCCESSFUL, HOW DO YOU ACCOMPLISH THIS? I continue to stay in contact with my long term fan base and create new fans through my web site, social media and special appearances. TWO PART QUESTION: A LOT OF STARS THAT ARE MORE MATURE EITHER RETIRE OR START TO LOSE FANS, HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR FANS? Thats easy by staying in shape, giving them what they want, something good to look at! WHEN YOU DO EVENTUALLY RETIRE, WHAT DO YOU SEE YOURSELF DOING POST MODELING? I think my body look better than 10 years ago and am much more business smart so I don’t plan on retiring anytime soon! WHEN YOU WERE STARTING OUT WHERE THERE ANY PORN STARS YOU LOOKED UP? Not really, I was guided by Blue Blake who mentored me. But late in my career I had big respect for some of them what were able to made amazing careers and walk out of Porn as a not ruined trash!
